Inhaltsangabe

Four hundred years from now mankind is strung out across a region of interstellar space inherited from an ancient civilization discovered on Mars. The colonies are linked together by the occasional sublight colony ship voyages and hyperspatial data-casting. Human consciousness is digitally freighted between the stars and downloaded into bodies as a matter of course.

But some things never change. So when ex-envoy, now-convict Takeshi Kovacs has his consciousness and skills downloaded into the body of a nicotine-addicted ex-thug and presented with a catch-22 offer, he really shouldn't be surprised. Contracted by a billionaire to discover who murdered his last body, Kovacs is drawn into a terrifying conspiracy that stretches across known space and to the very top of society. Read by Todd McLaren.

too fast?

well I don't say this very often, but I actually liked the TV series better than the book. somehow the book is just a little bit too fast it doesn't develop the characters as nicely.

Bad production

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

One star removed for replacing the (very good) reader from the first two books. This is very annoying in a trilogy.
One star removed for the editor due to the wrong pronunciation of the main characters last name (especially considering that this has been a point made repeatedly in Altered Carbon).
Two stars removed for bad audio design. The publishers try to use effects to spice up this production was a huge misfire for me. The introduction almost hurt to listen to.

Very good story but bad execution. Probably will not even finish this.
Shame, the first two audio books were very good.

Truly amazing

This must definitely be one of the best books I have read in the past five years. Richard Morgan managed to create a world which is so dense and so fascinating that one can’t help but be dazzled and terrified at the same time by his dystopian future. It is interesting to speculate where he got his inspiration from. No doubt from modern day political, economic, military, social and philosophical problems. Easy to read/to listen to. An absolute page turner! It is good that he has written to more books. Also to be recommended.

Great Story, Great narrator, bad audio quality

The story is great, Todd McLarens performance is perfect, but the Audio quality is really bad. Muffled and crackling.

Story good, performance good, production meh

There should have been longer pauses of silence between scenes. These just are way too short. Sometimes it takes you half a sentence to realize, that you are now in a completely different scene.

Love the book/schow

I wanted to read/hear the books after watching the netflix show. I love it as much as I enjoyed the show but the story sometimes jumps to a side story (a dream, flashback, etc.) so abruptly that you don’t actually realize it for a couple of seconds and it really throws you off the story cause you sit there wondering „wait whats happening?!“. Overall still recommend!

Best Narrator, but worst audio quality I have ever heard

The narrator is the best you could wish for which for. Especially for this dark and deep story. He managed to give every character its own facette by modulating his voice in a real artistic way.
The audio quality however is profoundly bad. It was not mixed professionally. Especially the lack of treble and the bass boost make the narrator very hard to understand. I can also constantly hear cars passing by the recording studio. Why is the sound engineering of such a popular audio book left to semi professionals? There must have been enough budget! Quite disappointing...
